Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that New York appeared to be “on the other side” of the coronavirus outbreak, reporting another drop in deaths to 507 and highlighting other positive trends.
“If this trend holds we are past the high point,” he told reporters at a briefing on Long Island. “Whether or not the descent continues depends on what we do. But right now we are on a descent.”
The new death count was the lowest since April 6, after the state weathered almost two weeks of fatalities between 606 and 799, on April 9. In a notably upbeat briefing, Cuomo showed the curve of total hospitalizations on steady downward trend. He said that intubations onto ventilators continue to drop.
